Some of the best lines heard at the Democratic National Convention:

·        “One thing you can say of George Bush; Mr. President, we will always be in your debt.”--Raum Emmanuel (D-IL), 8/26

·        “If [McCain’s] the answer, the question must be ridiculous”--New York Governor David Patterson, 8/26/08

·        “Republicans talk about putting ‘country first,’ but tell that to Marion, Indiana. They sent my job overseas. America can’t afford more of the same. We need a president who puts the Barney Smiths before the Smith Barneys.”--Barney Smith, a once-proud Republican whose lost his job at the RCA factory in Marion, Indiana after 31 years, when his job was shipped overseas, 8/28/08

The best line not heard at the convention:

·        “[The Republicans are] asking for another four years -- in a just world, they’d get 10 to 20.”--Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), left out of his prepared speech at the request of the Obama Campaign. If we had more people like Kucinich in Washington, we wouldn’t be wondering how to get out of Iraq. We wouldn’t be there.


         The climax of the convention was Barack Obama’s acceptance speech. Here are some highlights:

·        Senator McCain likes to talk about judgment, [but] what does it say about your judgment when you think George Bush has been right more than ninety percent of the time?

·        For over two decades, [John McCain has] subscribed to that old, discredited Republican philosophy--give more and more to those with the most and hope that prosperity trickles down to everyone else. In Washington, they call this the Ownership Society, but what it really means is--you're on your own. 


·        Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the most money and influence, but for every American who's willing to work.

·         Change means a tax code that doesn't reward the lobbyists who wrote it, but the American workers and small businesses who deserve it.
